Paul Merson, a hero from Arsenal, made his pick for Tottenham’s Premier League matchup with Bournemouth. Spurs are presently one point behind Manchester City in fourth place in the standings, despite the fact that Pep Guardiola’s team has played one fewer game than Spurs.

He told Sportskeeda: “Tottenham have turned it around in recent weeks and have got some key players back from injuries, but Bournemouth are absolutely flying at the moment, making this one of the most exciting games of the Premier League weekend. In fact, this is a bit of a nightmare game for Tottenham, as this is the worst time to face the Cherries.

“Cristian Romero is out for a month and Micky van de Ven is yet to return from his injury, so Ange Postecoglou’s side might struggle at the back against an in-form Dominik Solanke. He has really come into his own and his confidence is sky-high at the moment, but I think interested clubs might wait until the end of the season to take a punt on him.

“He’s been around for a while and has finally made his mark in the Premier League, so I’m really happen for him.”

Merson’s Prediction: Tottenham 2-2 Bournemouth

“Manager Ange Postecoglou, who could be missing injured defender Cristian Romero for up to five weeks, was hurt by Spurs’ loss to Brighton. That is a major setback for them because he is such an important player.

Meanwhile, Bournemouth just keeps winning. With eight goals in seven games, Dominic Solanke and them are both on fire.

“Spurs’ improvised defense won’t be able to stop him, but they will win. They have a lot of creative players and can destroy Bournemouth, but it might take a Postecoglou rocket to get them back on track.”

Sutton’s pick: Tottenham defeats Bournemouth 3-1.
